    I find so many Elle US covers from the late 80s to the mid-90s to be absolutely breathtaking, so I felt that they deserve a thread.

    Editorials are also welcome. ^_^

    Do you know who the photographer was? I know that Gilles Bensimon did most of the Elle France covers and I do recognize some of these as Gilles but I am not sure if they all are.

    Both Gilles Bensimon and Marc Hispard did a lot of their early photographs.

    US Elle's site has a small 'flashback' section to celebrate its 25th anniversary.

    Yes, it's Vendela. I remember seeing the editorial in the magazine.

    ^They need model experts like us :lol:


    Here what they say about 1987 :

    1987 might just be one of the best years for pop culture ever. The Princess Bride, Wall Street, Dirty Dancing, and Spaceballs were among the top 10 highest grossing films of the year; Kasey Kasem counted down hits like U2’s “With or Without You,” George Michael’s “Faith,” The Bangles’ “Walk Like an Egyptian,” and arguably one of the most makeout-session assured slow-dance numbers in modern history: Chris Deburgh’s “Lady in Red.”

    1987 was a banner year for ELLE, too. Not only had the magazine made it through its first full year in circulation (an accomplishment that was no small feat even in the booming ‘80s) but it was thriving—each new issue adding a few more ad pages than the last. Designers at the top of their game included Stephen Sprouse, Issey Miyake, Karl Lagerfeld, Calvin Klein, and furrier Chantal Thomass, all of whose collections were featured in ELLE’s pages, often in prominent designer-spotlight fashion stories. The trends were heavily geared toward sportswear: matchy-matchy knits, colorblocked coats, and casual leather. Punctuating these looks were the accessories: bauble-y, oversized jewelry, John Lennon-style round sunglasses, long-strapped purses, simple suede pumps, Bass Weejun loafers, and jewel-tone skimmers.

    The first ELLE cover featured a copper-lidded Yasmin Le Bon in nothing but knits and one of the decade’s most recognizable accessories—oversized hoop earrings. (September 1985)

    Molly!!

    When Molly Ringwald posed for this shoot, she was in the middle of filming Pretty in Pink—her second John Hughes film. With the blockbuster success of their first collaboration (Sixteen Candles), and their third (The Breakfast Club) already scheduled for the following year, Ringwald was the undisputed It-girl of the mid-’80s. And apparently, according to this article, Warren Beatty was her mentor, which is…interesting. (October 1985)

    A mink-lined blue leather parka, matching stretch pants, and a serious-faced scissor kick—the silly opulence of 1985 personified in one of ELLE’s first fashion stories. (October 1985)
